Herbed Halibut in Lime Butter

Claire Bush

Halibut is a firm white fish that's very lowfat and loaded with protein. A 2-lb bag of frozen filets is $19 in Costco; enough for two meals for a family of four. Here's a simple one dish meal that can be prepared in under an hour.



  • 4 halibut filets, thawed overnight in refrigerator (place in glass dish and cover with plastic wrap)
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup white wine or apple juice (optional)
  • 1/2 can chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp. each: tarragon, basil, oregano, dried parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • Butter or margarine
  • Salt and pepper


Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange thawed filets in 13x9 inch pyrex baking dish. Dot with butter or margarine. Sprinkle herbs over fish. Add lime juice, white wine or apple juice, and chicken broth, and salt and pepper.

Bake uncovered 30-35 minutes until fish flakes easily with fork. Remove bay leaf before serving.
